Hi,

   If $(TOP) is not equal to $(INSTALL_LOCATION), you cannot see startup
directory in 3.15.5 and 7.0.1.1. From our environment, we create that
directory, and copy EpicsHostArch.pl file into it.

   From 3.15.6-rc1, EpicsHostArch will be in startup directory if $(TOP)
is equal to $(INSTALL_LOCATION). However, if $(TOP) is not equal to
$(INSTALL_LOCATION), we cannot see "startup" path in
$(INSTALL_LOCATION). However, EpicsHostArch.pl file will be copied into
$(EPICS_BASE)/lib/perl path.

   Thanks for that, at least I know I'm not doing something wrong.

I partially circumvented this by copying a lot of stuff from the
source tree to the install tree. For as long as I have used EPICS
we have always had separate source trees and install trees and I'm
not willing to abandon that concept - we do that for the rest of
our software as well.
At some point in the extensions I got stuck - and then side-tracked
into other stuff that also needed to be done.

I hope to get back to that soon-ish (upgrading from 3.13.8) and I
hope that there are others struggling with the same concept and
maybe having come up with other solutions. I do not consider
installing into the source tree a solution.
